Connecting with Purpose

We have one life to live--our own--and we seek meaning through our life. But are we ON purpose? Do we know what unique gifts we offer the world, our world? This quote summarizes purpose nicely: "Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -Howard Thurman

Connecting with purpose comes from connecting with your passion, that which makes you feel alive and on purpose. It is that place, where when there, time has no measure. It is that place of deep meaning. Purpose is that place of connection with our true self--our authentic self--that feels alive.

Just watch a child sitting on their haunches, staring at a bug in the grass. Notice their presence and their focus. When you call her she doesn't seem to hear. She is transfixed. She remains unaffected by all the distractions that can obscure passion. That child-like quality exists for each of us when engaged in our purpose.

What do you do, that when engaged, time is of no consequence? What passion sparks you to come alive?
